Subject [PATCH] fd issue with apr_proc_create() and cleanup for exec
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2001 20:15:55 GMT
scenario:

. create a child process and enable pipes for the standard descriptors
  (0-2)
. have registered cleanups for files which use any of the standard
  descriptors

problem:

  the dup2() calls in the child to set up the pipes on the standard
  descriptors close whatever was on those descriptors before

  cleanup for exec closes not what was on those descriptors before but
  instead closes the pipes

  child process gets EBADF when reading from stdin or writing to
  stdout/stderr

quick hack:

  tweak the order of processing in the child so that the cleanup
  happens before we set up our pipes on the standard descriptors

This patch is barely tested; it gets my silly apache module to work,
but I can't make any other promises.
